Mid-Century Ranch Home Remodel

Mid-Century Ranch Home Remodel

This young family loved their mid-century ranch home, but the small, segregated rooms accompanied by heavy trim and traditional details made it feel small and old fashioned. Most of their square footage was in the formal dining room and the formal sitting room, neither of which served this growing family very efficiently. They had a very small, closed in kitchen; an outdated main bathroom with a tiny closet; a laundry closet that was hard to access, and a living room that was separate from the rest of the house. Their goal was to completely redesign the floor plan to reimagine the main living spaces for modern life and improved traffic flow between rooms while incorporating their casual, eclectic style throughout for continuity.

A 450 square foot home addition gave this family a brand-new formal dining room filled with natural light, a larger main suite with a proper walk-in closet, and a screened porch that provides connectivity between their main bedroom, the dining room addition, and their spacious back yard.

Olde Providence, Charlotte

Project Scope:

Custom Redesign


The redesigned kitchen features a long island with seating for five and drawers for practical, accessible storage. Minimal wall cabinets maximize the natural light from the new windows overlooking the backyard. It was important to incorporate casual, semi-rustic elements with rich natural tones throughout the kitchen and adjoining spaces for a cohesive aesthetic. Darker, moody paint colors on cabinetry, weathered quartersawn white oak, brick tile, and simpler moldings give this home an approachable feel.

The addition on the back of this mid-century ranch home remodel provided an opportunity to redesign the existing laundry room and add a walk-in pantry and a powder room where the original dining room once stood. Previously, the laundry closet was housed off a narrow hallway inside the back door resulting in a tight squeeze when coming inside with an armload of groceries or backpacks. The redesign included capturing the square footage of an exterior storage closet and incorporating it into the new laundry space. Now they have a truly customized laundry room and mudroom complete with a utility sink for messes and built-in cubbies for storage.

The larger main suite included a new walk-in closet, a large shower with a bench seat, and a deep bathtub – something they didn’t have previously and really wanted to incorporate into the new design. The white and green color palette mixed with brushed gold, natural wood, and matte black continue the calming, nature-inspired color scheme from the rest of the home.

The dry bar space makes excellent use of the long wall between the new kitchen and dining room addition. Flexible, secondary spaces like this provide hidden storage for items that aren’t used every day in the kitchen. The additional counter space and beverage center allows this wall to double as an entertaining zone when they have guests.

The new dining room addition is flooded with natural light from the back yard. The low pitch of the ceiling helps to create a feeling of spaciousness, without veering too far from the original eight-foot ceiling height in the original structure.

Connecting the main suite and the dining room addition, the screened porch addition provides a private place for afternoon naps, and al fresco dining, safe from biting insects.

A utility sink is a must-have for any growing family. Whether cleaning up paint brushes from a craft project, muddy boots from the garden, or soaking an epic marinara stain on your favorite white cotton t-shirt, a utility sink has your back.

Conveniently located off the mudroom, the new powder room is a welcome addition to this mid-century ranch home. Repeating the same wallpaper and trim color ties the two spaces together to create visual flow.

“We are incredibly pleased with how everything turned out. The project exceeded our expectations and turned out absolutely beautiful—not to mention on time and within budget. ReVision took on a big job, with two perfectionist, persnickety homeowners, and left us thrilled with the results. It was truly a pleasure working with this team. It is surreal that we get to live here – it’s literally our dream.”

While a wood burning fireplace wasn’t going to be practical due to code requirements, this new gas fireplace does the trick. Simple paneling and a brick veneer give this fireplace casual character in keeping with their aesthetic.

Inspiration for kitchen cabinet hardware ideas can be found just about anywhere. Here we chose a combination of brushed brass pulls and knobs for the green base cabinetry, and matte black pulls and knobs for the quartersawn white oak cabinetry. Subtle contrast allows each to stand out, while coordinating with the other finishes in the room.

By capturing the square footage from an exterior storage room, we were able to upgrade this family from a laundry closet to a custom laundry-mudroom combination, complete with custom built storage for shoes, jackets, and backpacks.

When it came to their main suite addition, a double vanity, deep soaking tub, and a large shower with a tile accent wall were non-negotiables for this couple. The large format matte black hexagon floor tile paired with classic white subway tile allow the green herringbone accent wall to act as the focal point. Because dark colors recede, this modest bathroom feels longer than it is. Creamy walls, neutral wood tones and more mixed metals pull everything together in an approachable way.

The main suite addition included a proper walk-in closet concealed by a mirrored barn door, access to the screened porch addition, and a simple paneled wall in the same deep navy blue as the fireplace.

Ranch Home Goals

When this family came to us with plans for redesigning their mid-century ranch home, they were clear about their goals. They wanted additional square footage, a more open plan that allowed for easier traffic flow between the most frequented living spaces, lots of natural light, simpler architectural details, more efficient storage solutions, and increased functionality throughout the entire home.

By adding over 450 square feet to both the public and private living spaces, and redesigning the existing structure to accommodate their goals, they’re now able to come home to and better enjoy their customized mid-century ranch home in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina.
